CMA Venue of The Year Nomination

Both ONE The Show and The South’s Grandest Christmas Show have been consistently voted #1 by both Myrtle Beach area locals and visitors. However, this year we received an even bigger honor!

This year we were thrilled to learn that we were one of the nominees for Venue of the Year by The Country Music Association (CMA). Other nominees included the Ascend Amphitheatre in Nashville, TN; Bank of New Hampshire Pavillion in Guilford, NH; Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Morrison, CO; and the world-famous Ryman Auditorium in Nashville, TN.

The award ceremony was held on January 28th, 2019 at the Marathon Music Works in Nashville. The Ryman Auditorium was the eventual winner of Venue of the Year. While we didn’t win, it was still an honor to be honored on the same stage as the Ryman Auditorium, which is considered to be the ‘mother-church’ of country music.

2019 ONE The Show

The Alabama Theatre celebrates its 26th year with its NEW Production of ONE The Show.  Voted again the #1 Live Entertainment Theatre by Myrtle Beach visitors and locals, and nominated for Country Music Association Venue of the Year, the Alabama Theatre introduces ONE The Show. ONE combines extraordinary talent, iconic production numbers, sizzling visual elements and extravagant costuming with hit songs from many exciting musical genres. Critics are saying “There’s Simply Nothing Like It!”

Produced out of Nashville, ONE The Show, has delivered another “mega hit” with this year’s new extravaganza. ONE showcases some of Broadway’s popular numbers like “Hairspray’s” You Can’t Stop the Beat opening the show with high energy to Lion King, & Westside Story. Also new for 2019 is the highly theatrical and energetic song Come Alive from the hit film The Greatest Showman depicting the spirit of the circus with colorful costumes, athletic choreography, and aerial acrobatics. 

Among many of the additions to ONE The Show we will also celebrate the phenomenal career of one of the most popular iconic singing groups ever: THE FOUR SEASONS! Our cast will perform several of their greatest songs, including: Working My Way Back to You, Can’t Take My Eyes Off of You, and December 1963. Other audience favorites include a Michael Jackson Tribute, the American Songbook Salute, and the crossover hit in Christian and Pop Music I Can Only Imagine. 

As always, the charm of emcee and featured vocalist Greg Rowles will make audiences feel at home while celebrating his 25th anniversary of winning Ed McMahan’s Star Search. Go back in time with Greg as he performs three of the songs that paved the way to victory for him in that inaugural season. Another crowd favorite Grant Turner, one of the funniest comedians in the country, returns as Ricky Mokel with new jokes and antics to entertain and delight all. Ricky will certainly have audiences leaving the theatre with their sides splitting.

The Alabama Theatre’s featured holiday production, The South’s Grandest Christmas Show, plays six nights a week during November and December with select matinees. This Christmas production brings an incredible combination of talent and dazzling special effects for a spectacular musical experience sure to put you in the holiday spirit.
